Christmas time, anyone got the transformation pill?

Given that I’m lacking for material at present, and this concept amused a workmate earlier today, lets roll with it!

Yes, tomorrow is one of those days when I get dressed up at work, but for once, its not a nice dress, for a meal, either with workmates, or with friends, or indeed for a presentation. No, this is the silly end of the scale, its an elf outfit!

There is a good reason, its the day that the ‘Secret Santa’ gifts are getting handed out at work, and Miss Claus (yes, we have a female Santa!) has an elf assistant, namely me! A lovely man at work is also getting dressed up as Scrooge, I’m told, so people ringing our office tomorrow might wish they had video phones lol!

Of course, the snag for this elf, is that her ears are, well, lets face it, rather human looking! Not surprising really, under the circumstances, but anyway…Wouldnt it be handy if there was a 1 day transformation pill I could take, to give me the proper elf look? I know, might be a bit awkward for the parts of the day when I’m in human guise, but in truth, with the wooly hat on, to keep me warm, would they really know?

PS Santa, if you know of one, leave it in my bedroom overnight, and I’ll take it in the morning lol! No, I’m not expecting to see any extra pills to take in the morning, somehow!

I suspect the rest of my Christmas might be a bit calmer, unless someone is planning to offer me a part in a production somewhere? No, as likely as finding that elf transformation pill in the morning, lol! But if it appears, I’ll let you know!

Right, video time. Maybe I should have gone with the standard video, but lets be brave, go with the live version. Discretion does add that if it isnt good for you, the official video can be found on the you tube page for this video. So…

The Elf In The Office

In a sense it might be a good thing that I’m not totally a believer in method acting, as I would have absolutely no idea how to get into the mindset of an elf. In truth, it wont be the first time I’ve played an elf, though it was about 45 years ago that I last did so, and I certainly wasnt contemplating method acting in the slightest back then, even if the concept existed at that time! In truth, given its just dressing up as an elf, to help Miss Claus give out Christmas presents at work, so I dont think its too critical, either way!

Oh, and yes, the outfit fits, I tried it on earlier today, just to make sure, though I didnt risk trying the tights/stockings/leggings on, in case of tear. Lets face it, its the main part of the outfit that needs to be fine, and it is. The elf boots are nothing like in the picture I posted a couple of blogs back, where they looked quite long, but in truth, they just about cover the ankles! Also, they are pretty soft, so I’m going to need to use them as shoe covers, as opposed to the only thing on my feet! And oh, the elf tunic nearly covers my knees! So yes, the tights (or whatever) will definitely have to be worn, at my age, for sure!

Thankfully, or otherwise, putting on the elf outfit didnt transform me completely. Probably for the best, though it might definitely have been interesting short term, and allowed me to get into the elf mindset, but never mind…

But yes, if any theater group, or movie company needs an elf extra, give me a call! And yes, if anyone does know a way to give me a true elf mindset, then lets go for it!

Right, video time. I know nothing about this, beyond that it came up on a random You Tube search, so…?

A Spaceman Came Travelling

Well, at least no one should be in doubt about tonights video lol! One of those glorious under rated Christmas songs that doesnt get the love it deserves. So fine, that can lead to a little silliness tonight, OK?

Over the years there has been much talk about whether there are visitors to Earth from Outer Space, or not. Now, whether Roswell really happened in 1947, or not, who knows? But its funny, that if nothing happened, why security is so tight in that little area of New Mexico, but anyway…? And yes, in terms of logical flight times, it seems unlikely, to put it mildly. But equally, if these alien being have created some form of hyper space flight, well then, who knows? But agreed, in most cases, unless they have craft that can fly faster than the speed of light, its pretty doubtful.

Yes, thats a shame for me, as I would love it to be true! Even better if they want to prove it to me, in any way of their choice! Oh fine, the offer of a part as an alien, with decent/good outfit, I would love it! In a sense, I suppose De Burgh’s hypothesis about an event that happened just over 2000 years ago is probably no better, or worse than many others. I’m sure an angel would have looked a very alien creature to Shepherds back then, for sure. But a visitor from Outer Space, who has never returned in over 2000 years (allegedly), hmm?

Well, I know my next ‘acting’ role, and it wont be an alien, unless I get a very good offer within the next 10 days! Instead, it will be an Elf, acting as assistant to Miss Claus, at the Secret Santa gift presentation, a week on Wednesday. Yes, its a ‘get your own outfit’ job, and I found this one on Ebay that I thought would be fun.

Not sure something that short is wise at my age, but its only for a few hours, so why not? If anyone is daft enough to risk their picture taking device (cant just say camera any more, lol) taking a picture of me wearing it, I promise to post it!

Right, the video. You know what it is already, and its the official version of it, as it seems quite apt

National Elf Service

No, despite the play on the title, this is definitely not political, just saying! Rule of the job, lol!

This morning, on that site we all love to hate (to some degree, surely), namely Facebook, I found a new day to celebrate something. Yes, seemingly a week on Friday, 8th December, its National Elf Day. Well, it is as far as the Alzheimers Society is concerned at least. I mean, there is a serious side to all this, because lets face it, Alzheimers, and the relating dementia issues are not a nice thing, and something that all of us, as we get older, have to dread getting. I know, some of us might quite like the idea of having our mind wiped, but only in a sci-fi way, not like that. And lets face it, wheres the fun in that, if you cant get the pleasure of being a controlled person afterwards anyway? 😉

Oh, you want proof? Fine!

So yes, if anyone wants to provide me with a suitable elf outfit before Friday week, feel free to do so, and I’ll wear it. Yes, at work if permitted, though definitely not on the bus on the way to work! 😛 No, I dont think First Buses are ready for the sight of a 59 year old, in an elf outfit, somehow! Mind, if I do, and you want pictures, it will cost you a donation to Alzheimers Society, for sure! Where?

Or if you prefer to do it through me, just to scare me as to how much money I can raise, I can set up a Just Giving page, if preferred? But yes, let us remember at this time of year, not just to think of ourselves, and present giving, lets also think of those who need support for other reasons as well.

OK, the video, definitely something new. The Barron Knights have been going nearly as long as me (Early 60’s), and incredibly, one of the originals is still in the band, even now! Basically, they’d take pop songs of their time, give them a little twist, and produce little gems like this
